Treasures from the Louvre

If you´re a regular reader of this blog, you´d know by now that I´m a certified bling fanatic. They don´t have to be expensive ( because I´m not rich) but they have to be pretty and colorful. I love them so much that I even seek them out in museums. ;)

Anyway, I know that the Louvre´s main gem is la Gioconda or simply put, the Mona Lisa. (She even has one gallery to herself!) The thing is, after being mesmerized by her coy smile and gentle gaze which will make you stare at her for like...eternity, you need to leave her because you had to give in to her other admirers. They can be so persistent, they´ll elbow their way to where you stand. Ouch!


But while we´re there, the hubz told me that he found something which will make my Louvre experience unforgettable. Et voila, my favorite pretty baubles! :)







They´re a mix of Egyptian, Persian, Greek and Assyrian jewelry dating to the BC* years. By that I mean really, really old. Ancient. Antiquated and well preserved. If you haven´t been to the Louvre, I highly recommend visiting it. It´s the best museum I´ve ever been to. Just don´t ask me in what floor can you find these blings. I got lost while I was there. hahaha!

More photos to show you soon. This is just the 1st part. ;)


For now, I´m asking you to send  me warm hugs from there because it´s so coooold in here! :)

Yes, I can tell you're a bling fanatic :) I like the jewelry you have on throughout your blog. They aren't plain and they are colorful, which I like.

Hope you had a good weekend, and thanks for your comment about marriage!
